A research proposal bears some similarity to a contract.
While it is not a contract in a legal sense, it can be thought of as an intellectual contract.
A more difficult question to ask would be: Why have those behaviors changed since the introduction of wind turbines into wetlands?
Answering this question involves the collection of data, the reading of current scientific literature, the analysis of information, and the formulation of a hypothesis.
With such an involved process, you need to develop a plan as to how you are going to answer this question when writing your research proposal.
Research is about the pursuit of knowledge, whether it be welcomed or unwelcomed.
This part of the paper will focus on the anatomy of this type of document.
There’s no doubt about it, coming up with a research topic that’s original, interesting and scientifically valid is tough for experienced researchers, as well as students hoping to compete in the SBC. Coming up with an idea for a project is a collaborative event.
But before we begin to discuss the nuts and bolts of how to write a research proposal, we need to understand what it is and what it is not.
Developing this understanding now will make the process of writing your research proposal a whole lot easier.
